The job fair is free and open to all job seekers. Attendees are encouraged to bring many copies of their resume. The Chamber will scan each resume collected at this career fair and create an on-line database that participating job fair companies can access after the event.

Detailed job fair information will be available on the Chamber’s website at www.greaterbinghamtonchamber.com, with a full packet outlining participating companies, contact information and a list of available jobs.

The Greater Binghamton Chamber has been providing Career Fairs to the business community for two decades. It is an opportunity to bring together employers and job seekers in one venue. Our Career Fairs are designed to connect people with opportunities in our community. The Greater Binghamton Chamber coordinates these events twice a year (August and November in 2020).

“This job fair on August 7 is more important than ever,” commented Amy Shaw, COO of the Greater Binghamton Chamber. “As our community hit the pause button back in March due to COVID, it’s time to put people back to work and move our economy forward. One way to do that is to connect job seekers to the over 4,400 jobs available in the Southern Tier. And this event helps accomplish that.”
